The unfortunate Long-winged Conehead seen here was wrapped in silk and killed so quickly I couldn't get a photo of the 'action'. I estimate it was all over in four seconds. Unbelievably quick!
The poor unfortunate.
This massive individual was on Ballard Down.
She's tucking into her latest victim here.
This smaller one was on the Artemisia Reserve in Brandon Suffolk, she was catching pretty big prey items though.
This one was also on the Brandon reserve and was stockpiling her prey items!
And at Langstone Harbour while looking for Slender Hare's Ear we saw a couple of the spiders guarding their large elaborate egg sacs.....
Some more attentive than others!
A couple of close ups for the arachnophobes (Don't look Martha!)
